Ingredients

Pancakes:

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 medium apple grated
  • coconut oil for frying

Topping:

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 apples small dice (about 2 heaping cups of diced apples)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Maple syrup to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200F/90C degrees.

For the pancakes

  1. In a blender, add all pancake ingredients and blend until smooth.
  2. Heat about a teaspoon of coconut oil at a time over medium heat and scoop out 1/4 cup of batter per pancake. Fry a couple minutes on each side, or until it begins to bubble in the center, flip carefully and fry until golden brown. 

  3. Repeat until you have about 10 medium-sized pancakes. Set in a 200F/90C degree oven to warm while you make the topping.

For the topping

  1. Sautee coconut oil and diced apples over medium-high heat, stirring often. Once apples begin to soften, add maple syrup, coconut sugar, water, vanilla, spices, and salt. 

  2. Continue stirring often over medium heat until apples are tender, but not mushy. Once the apples look syrupy and softened, remove from heat.

  3. Top pancakes with apple topping and drizzle with maple syrup to serve. Enjoy immediately.
